scribe: Gregory_Rosmaita
20:02:36 [oedipus]
scribenick: oedipus
20:03:01 [oedipus]
JS: may not be able to stay whole hour
20:03:19 [oedipus]
JS: main concern -- chaals needs to do chaals' work -- we can be accomodating, but need to keep ball rolling
20:03:24 [richardschwerdtfe]
20:03:26 [richardschwerdtfe]
20:03:36 [oedipus]
i/JS: may not/TOPIC: News & Notes
20:03:40 [richardschwerdtfe]
20:03:52 [oedipus]
TOPIC: Image Map versus ADom
20:03:58 [richardschwerdtfe]
20:04:09 [oedipus]
RS: don't think is a "versus" but how to pull together to include chaals
20:04:11 [oedipus]
JS: yes
20:04:28 [oedipus]
s/versus ADom/and ADom
20:04:50 [oedipus]
RS: in holding pattern; can try to pull together into single proposoal but going to take fair bit of work hadn't signed up to do
20:05:03 [oedipus]
JS: chaals needs to be involved, not all on Rich
20:06:13 [oedipus]
RS: can make recommendations; need to be pulled together; needs type of wording in ADom proposal for Imagemap proposal
20:06:27 [oedipus]
RS: regular HTML maps to A11y API, not intuative what devs will do with CANVAS
20:06:55 [oedipus]
RS: don't know how far will get with HTML WG to state need IMAP version 4.01 restored
20:07:03 [oedipus]
RS: didn't make HTML WG call
20:07:11 [oedipus]
JS: CANVAS did not come up during call
20:07:17 [oedipus]
RS: in state of limbo with HTML WG
20:07:57 [oedipus]
JS: pushed in HTML WG call some time ago and had clarified that any a11y issues should be assigned to TF -- until TF reports back to HTML WG, not an issue for HTML WG
20:08:01 [davidb]
guys, my regrets, debugging something.
20:08:07 [oedipus]
JS: need separation of trackers
20:08:15 [oedipus]
regrets+ David_Bolter
20:08:36 [oedipus]
JS: Rich, you did report out, received feedback, but until TF votes is a TF and not HTML WG issue
20:09:48 [oedipus]
JS: should try to do before CSUN; if chaals' can't contribute before CSUN, move on ADom -- consensus is not unanimity (sp?)
20:10:05 [oedipus]
JS: see if can schedule time with CMN; he needs to do background work on proposals
20:10:23 [oedipus]
JS: can remind CMN that waiting for his input on several ARIA issues, as well
20:11:51 [oedipus]
RS: clear to me based on Paul Cotton's comments, going back to HT ML 4.01 imagemap is NOT an option
20:11:54 [oedipus]
RS: HTML5 has whole bunch of additional elements to add to imagemap -- drag'n'drop is only 1 -- may be others
20:12:11 [oedipus]
TOPIC: Progress on Caret Tracking
20:12:20 [oedipus]
RS: SteveF took RichS proposal and put on wiki
20:12:25 [oedipus]
regrets+ Steve_Faulkner
20:12:44 [oedipus]
RS: have details and actual proposal
20:12:46 [oedipus]
20:13:06 [oedipus]
20:13:19 [oedipus]
20:13:27 [oedipus]
JS: hixie is not the gatekeeper
20:13:41 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate oedipus
20:14:01 [oedipus]
JS: is copyright claim in HTML WG docs
20:14:10 [oedipus]
RS: propsal for caret tracking -- next steps?
20:14:13 [oedipus]
RS: review
20:14:22 [oedipus]
GJR: DBolter sent regrets
20:14:51 [oedipus]
RS: will send DBolter and FrankO to review canvas accessibility proposal -- caret browsing is "low-hanging fruit" ready to be plucked
20:15:04 [oedipus]
RS: part of issue 74 -- do we take this as separate proposal to HTML WG?
20:15:09 [oedipus]
JS: take first to TF
20:15:12 [oedipus]
RS: and then...
20:15:24 [oedipus]
JS: does it stand on its own?
20:15:42 [oedipus]
RS: stands on own, but to solve entire Issue-74 needs navtree and imagemap combined
20:15:54 [oedipus]
RS: separate document created by hixie for 2D canvas api
20:16:10 [oedipus]
RS: can defect be leveraged against canvas when forked from main HTML draft
20:17:04 [oedipus]
RS: try to get canvas change proposal ready; submit to TF once Canvas Caucus approves change; ask TF if want to make part of issue-74
20:17:09 [oedipus]
JS: can advance as partial fulfilment
20:17:16 [oedipus]
RS: will get PCotton help too
20:17:42 [oedipus]
RS: DavidB and JamesC and FrankO will be asked to review; if changes, submit to SteveF AND RichS
20:17:55 [oedipus]
RS: SXSW coming up then 2 weeks until CSUN
20:18:03 [oedipus]
JS: CSUN 22-27 March 2010
20:18:20 [oedipus]
RS: will send out note to WG and to CMN to see if can attend next week or delegate someone to do work
20:19:12 [oedipus]
RS: know my approach works ok -- others may like to use an imagemap, but is a BIG change in my mind, based on what PaulC indicated and i expected
20:19:36 [oedipus]
RS: ability to include DOM elements in imagemap removed for reason -- probably sheer size
20:19:57 [oedipus]
JS: would be good if when written up, stands on its own, so can be rejected on own if comes to that
20:20:00 [oedipus]
RS: ok
20:21:02 [oedipus]
JS: what we agreed here, if imagemap controversial keep in separate proposal so don't have to rip out in case CMN or opera can't finish imagemap proposal -- that should be advanced on its own as another approach but requested change to imagemap may be a non-starter with HTML WG
